The childhood home of serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer has come on the market for $295,000 according to the Associated Press. The 2,170 square foot home was built in 1952 and offers 3 bedrooms & 3 bathrooms on a large 1.55-acre lot in Akron, Ohio. A year after the home was built it was featured in the Akron Beacon Journal praising the modern architecture.
Jeffrey Dahmers childhood home and first murder: In 1978 Jeffery just graduated high school and he was home alone for the summer. He picked up a hitchhiker Steven Mark Hicks and killed him with a 10 lbs weight and buried him under the back porch.
Back on April 3, 2014, WKYC talked with the current owner of the home -- Chris Butler. He's the songwriter and guitarist for the band The Waitresses, whose song "I Know What Boys Like," made him famous. He still owns the house and has had no luck selling it for the past two years.
“Dahmer and his parents moved into the house in 1968 when he was 8 years old. Ten years later, he committed his first murder there, killing a hitchhiker he had brought home and then burying the remains in the woods.” Dahmer moved out of state in 1982 and killed 16 people before being caught in 1991. The property is listed with Richard Lubinski who told the Associated Press, “This is not a museum.” It will only be shown to serious buyers.
